Helps Ethereum Projects Quickly Deploy Smart Contracts to Moonbeam

Boston, MA – November 3, 2020PureStake, the company developing the Moonbeam smart contract platform, has launched the Moonbeam Truffle Box. Truffle is one of the most popular development tools on Ethereum, and Truffle Boxes are pre-configured packages that help reduce the time it takes to create and deploy code to supported networks. With this release, developers will use a boilerplate setup on Truffle to quickly extend their project to Moonbeam.

Moonbeam, an Ethereum-compatible smart contract platform on the Polkadot network, makes it easy to build multi-chain applications. With the Moonbeam Truffle Box, Ethereum developers can easily deploy smart contracts on Moonbeam, opening new user experiences and assets. Devs will leverage Truffle’s development environment that also offers a testing framework (with Mocha and Chai) and a full asset pipeline on Moonbeam. 

The Moonbeam Truffle Box is pre-configured with two networks: dev (for a standalone Moonbeam node) and Moonbase (for the Moonbase Alpha TestNet). An example ERC-20 token contract and simple test script is included as well as examples. The setup will feel familiar to users that have experience with Truffle. 

Moonbeam Truffle Box has also incorporated the Moonbeam Truffle plugin, a quick and easy solution to start developing in local environments, by introducing support for a docker based standalone node image. It streamlines the process of setting up a local node, which can take up to 40 minutes when building its binary from source.

Moonbeam is an official sponsor of TruffleCon 2020. As part of our “Making a dApp Multi-Chain: Deploying Solidity Smart Contracts to Moonbeam” talk on Saturday, November 7, we will be showcasing the new Moonbeam Truffle Box. Alberto Viera and Joshy Orndorff from the PureStake team will be presenting. Register for free to watch this and other developer-focused talks: https://trfl.co/tcon2020.

About the Moonbeam Network

Moonbeam is an Ethereum-compatible smart contract platform on the Polkadot network that makes it easy to build natively interoperable applications. This Ethereum compatibility allows developers to deploy existing Solidity smart contracts and DApp frontends to Moonbeam with minimal changes. As a parachain on the Polkadot network, Moonbeam will benefit from the shared security of the Polkadot relay chain and integrations with other chains that are connected to Polkadot. Currently in active development by PureStake, Moonbeam is expected to reach MainNet by early 2021. Learn more: https://moonbeam.network/
